Computer Literacy Needs in a Traditional Library Literacy Program: Results of a Needs Analysis
Cullen, Theresa A.; Cobb, Inger C.
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v55 n6 p25-32 Nov 2011
This study reports the results of a needs analysis of literacy programs for a library system serving three rural and suburban counties. It examines the computing skills and needs of literacy tutors as well as native-speaking and English language learner (ELL) literacy tutees enrolled in the programs. Paper surveys were mailed to tutors, who were asked to complete a survey themselves and assist their tutees to complete one. Results of this study offer insights into the incorporation of digital literacy into traditional adult literacy programs focusing on the needs, wants, and support systems of user groups.
